Video: Paul Ryan Reacts: Obama continues to shadow dance with America, punts – gives another word fog full of fury, signifying nothing

More Updates at end of post.

Update: Paul Ryan is GREAT here, he is ‘disappointed’ ohhh that is exactly it! They got us all revved up for that dereliction of duty of a speech from a lectern this afternoon? Really, really bad.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What a whiff that was!

As always, Obama votes Present by not coming out and endorsing either Simpson-Bowles or anything else, (he gave them a shout out and a h/t at the end but endorsed none of their plan specifics). He did a word fog full of the same tired lines from ’08. Promises he has ALREADY FAILED TO FULFILL in the past 3 years.

Then he did a pivot to his Dr. No, stern Daddy routine, and laughably, he did it on his ‘trademark issue’  The Bush Tax Cuts!, which is of course the Big Issue he ALREADY CAVED ON!

Yes, audacity and bamboozlement is back for Obamapalooza Tour ’11-’12! All the Hype, None of the Hope!

They really plan to run on the same 6 yr old tired, broken-down trope of Obama being anti-Bush Tax Cut extension and Pro Middle Class American Dream. (and mebbe he is…IN HIS DREAMS!! It’s just his actual POLICIES that let him down? ie protecting TBTF fxckers who have housing on its back, making the TBTF Bigger, and refusing to allow Clinton era tax rates to come back).

Unless Team Obama thought they had pulled off some Total Recall number on all of us last night, uh, WTF are they thinking?

Don’t they know that WE know that he ALREADY CRUMPLED LIKE THE WET PAPER BAG HE IS on the extension of the Bush tax cuts? Did he think we somehow didn’t notice that?

Sure, he gave us the courtesy of a –  ‘I was forced to extend them to protect the middle class tax cuts’ BS line again, but again, if he gave his big ‘Hostages could be hurt’ spiel last time, doesn’t he think that WE think that HE WILL CAVE and extend them again when the Big Bad GOP Grandma Eating Wolf at the Door takes we middle class ‘victims’ ‘hostage’ again?

I means seriously, what the fxck? He doesn’t even TRY to spin us anymore? This is the best you;ve got? Man it’s lookin like a Fred Thompson energy level for Obama this time around.

So, it’s official there is for all effects and purposes no functioning POTUS on issues of real import. Congress needs to do what Hillary does on Foreign Policy, try to carry out the job with limited power while a Holier-Than-Thou absentee boss comes in once in a blue moon to pixx and moan about the work accomplished.

Let’s Review the Record on Obama’s Time at the Helm:

Foreign Policy? Has to be pushed HARD for MONTHS to make a decision, often leading to deterioration of circumstances on the ground that would allow mission success. See Af/Pak, Libya.

Update-Bonus- Launch military action unsanctioned by Congress, (previously one of your favorite Boosh! criticisms), go to Brazil to promote their energy independence and offer to make us dependent on them, do not make speech to nation on Libyan action.

Economy in Recession? Outsource a giant spendulus to Congressional Leadership of Pelosi/Reid and ‘Apollo Alliance’. Bonus – Insert unverifiable targets like ‘saving or creating’ jobs, yet attach chart that clearly projects a  UE target that goes unmet for THREE YEARS while claiming Success! Escape Velocity! Recovery Summer!.

Explosion of Entitlement Spending to Drown us in Debt? Outsource to a Commission for some mythical ‘consensus’, ignore said Commission report except to use as prop/tool when helpful. See Simpson/Bowles Commission,

Budget Presentation to Congress and the Nation? Whiff. Jack up spending then present ‘Budget Freeze’. Get Budget Do-Over Pass from Media. Nevermind, it’s just another whiff.

Tax Debate? Your biggest campaign promise:  An End to the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich! Your raison d’être. Your ‘most deeply held political value’, the ‘shared sacrifice’, the ‘fairness rule’. You claim ‘hostages were taken, I couldn’t let people get hurt’ and position yourself, the President of the United States, as a hostage to the opposing party. You extend the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich!

Bonus- You continue to claim this is exactly the wrong policy, that it is hurting the nation but you sign the bill anyway.

Double Bonus- Bring out the last successful Democratic president to sell your plan to country, leave him alone at lectern with media. Added points since you called this man a ‘racist!’ during ’08 campaign.

Double Triple Toe-Loop Bonus – You run for a second term on same promise to End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich! that you just extended, but give no explanation of how you can avoid the ‘hostage situation’ and accomplish this.

I can’t EVEN get into the National Security issues, it is frightening to consider NSC Advisers who do not know of Averted Terror Attacks on Large Scale in London,( TSA is FRISKING children and the left is quiescent~)Janet Napolitano claiming the border is more secure than ever, (170 bodies found in mass graves THIS WEEK just over the border), the incredible volte-face he has done on EVERY, SINGLE Bush anti-Terrorism policy he lectured about since 2006. It goes on and on.

Update to list: How could we forget-

Natural Disasters: BP Oil Spill in Gulf. Stern language against BP ‘boot on throat!’. Photo op- unlike Boosh! don’t do flyover, get down and pick up tiny tarballs. Then fly away home. Oil spill continues, unchecked, leave company who caused spill in charge of ending it. CONVENE PANEL! Oil continues to spill, unchecked. 40 Days+ later BP finally stops spill. Sidle up to lectern declare success!

Bonus – Set up ‘pot o’dough’ the go-to method of ‘solving problems’ for Community Organizers, see Al Sharpton.

Energy Policy: Allow Boosh! Era lax regulation( another of your campaign talking points) /certification/oversight of permits to continue under your Change!(d) DOE. This leads to worst oil spill in history. Convene panel! Stop all oil permits. Everywhere, land or sea.

Bonus- Give more grants to campaign supporter GE for ‘windmills’.

Double Bonus- Continue to snark at hard-working Americans who drive large vehicles, infer it is their fault as gas DOUBLES in your first 3 years. Propose new gas tax!

Triple Lutz Bonus: Fund off shore oil drilling IN BRAZIL. Announce to Brazilians you want America  to be their customer. (Make announcement in Brazil while launching a military action that has not been sanctioned by Congress, leaving the American people to figure out what is happening without you.)

Conclusion–  I don’t see how he has any chance of winning, even if Katie Couric and Brian Williams pick him up and carry him between his Arena Circuit Tour of College Campuses this time.

Unless of course, the conservatives within the GOP decide to sit the election out as they did in ‘087. Really disappointing. I don’t think our economy will achieve Larry Summer’s vaunted ‘escape velocity’ if we get another 4 years of Obama.

Please vote. No matter who it is, please please vote.

Update 3: Jim DeMint calls Obama a ‘Bitter Clinger’!!!! BWAAAHAAA! (emphasis mine)~

The President made it absolutely clear today that Democrats will cling bitterly to deficit spending until our nation is bankrupt. After offering an unserious budget just a few months ago, the President offered new platitudes but the same old policies. He’s still pushing for trillion dollar tax increases that would destroy jobs and cripple our economy. He still wants to add trillions in new spending to our $14 trillion mountain of debt without a credible plan to ever balance the budget….”

Update 2: AllahPundit at HotAir has more Ryan goodness from Levin.

“He’s basically a pyromaniac in a field of straw men”

President Clueless tells people if gas is too high, get a new car cuz it will take ‘years’ to ‘adjust’ prices aka ‘Let Them Eat Chevy Volts!’

Good Gawd. IOW Let them eat Volts!

Clearly he is pixxed and advisers are telling him no re-elct with $5 gas for you chump~and in his usual passive aggressive way, he is mad at US for being broke due to HIS asinine plan

And Barry doesn’t like when all his carefully dreamed up plans cause him aggravation.

Recall, he said in 07- ‘under my plan electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket’. Yeah electricity, heating oil, gasoline. And he hasn’t even gotten his cap and trade yet, imagine the future with another 4 years of this guy.

Mad Max anyone?

YahooNews and a better interpretation from ZeroHedge:

…”I’m just going to be honest with you. There’s not much we can do next week or two weeks from now,” the president told workers at a wind turbine plant (one operated by Spanish company Gamesa). “Gas prices? They’re going to still fluctuate until we can start making these broader changes, and that’s going to take a couple of years to have serious effect.

And we doubt Obama’s hard core union electorate will be happy at the following stab at Channel Stuffing Motors: “If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly.You might want to think about a trade-in.“…

…As to the core question, we were surprised Bill Dudley was not present at Obama’s side explaining how deluded complainers should just have a chilled glass of unleaded 98 Octane with their main course of deflationary iPad 2....

Obama lies, the economy dies: claims *horrendous* May ‘jobs report shows our economy is getting stronger every day’. Hey POTUS, can the Sgt Pepper impression and BUY A FRAKKIN CLUE with all the money you are spending!!!

Update: Markets Close with DOW down 323 to 9931, NAS down 84 to 2219 and S&P down 37 to 1064. President Disconnect just announced after his Gulf briefing that ‘it sounds like we’re making progress’ on the spill. I don’t think he could be more out of touch with reality if he tried.

ZOMG on what frakkin PLANET is Obama governing, cuz it sure ain’t any of the economies on this one!?!?!

Too much time with McCartney mebbe, not enough at the Gulf or you know in THE REAL WORLD:

Md., June 4 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Friday the gain of 431,000 jobs in May is a sign the U.S. economy is getting stronger, although there will still be ups and downs going forward.

“This report is a sign that our economy is getting stronger by the day,” Obama said in remarks to about about 50 workers at a large truck garage in Maryland.

“A lot of businesses that were hit hard during this downturn, they are starting to hire again. Workers who were laid off are starting to get their jobs back,” he said.

Someone wake up our dreaming POTUS and have him take a gander at HIS OWN ECONOMIC FORECAST his Dream Team put together when they spent A TRILLION dollars just a year ago, courtesy Gateway Pundit:

The Census never called moi for a job either :0( And I only got one wrong on the test too. Hubby says I am on a ‘list’, lol. Think it was my supervisory experience? my active political background? my filling in of my ethnicity as ‘American’ on my own Census form? My inability to keep my big yap shut when I see inefficiency, waste or duplicative effort? Might be rabbit might be…

with the reports I am seeing from those hired, laid off, rehired etc, it may be just as well~ I would be a shadow on a FOX show revealing the waste fer shure…my mom did get many hours of work from Census though so at least some actual people got some actual work for a short period…(Note: to be fair, lol, I did indicate on my Census application that I was ‘unwilling’ to go door to door, hubby worries over safety- so sweet :0) but sadly I got no call to work in the calling center or office work)

now if they can get the Census folks to count how many times Team O has said we are beginning our recovery maybe that will keep them busy til after the midterm elections…

PS Euro traded under 1.20 against the USD….and Hungary is looking at default.…but other than that (and the Gulf oil spill and the collapse of the American consumer and the housing double dip) everything is coming up *roses* per Team O….

Twofer Tuesday: Democrats are focused on Winning the Battle but are losing the War & Team Obama says high Unemployment to last all year…

Even if Pelosi and Obama take this Hill, they will lose the war. November is only a few months away. Any Dem Critter who is considering ‘making history’ with this ‘non-vote-vote’ BS should consider that their majority is about to evaporate and the GOP will feel free to utilize the same brute force shortly…and next time Americans will support them doing so in order to take back the economy and allow job creation to take place…

And the voters will knock the Dems out come November…

Dems who vote Aye or ‘self execute’ this monstrosity had better line up their next jobs, and don’t count on UE dropping anytime soon per…Team Obama economic whiz kids:

US employers won’t hire enough workers this year to lower the jobless rate much below the level of 9.7% reached in February, three Obama administration economic officials said today.

The proportion of Americans who can’t find work is likely to “remain elevated for an extended period,” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, White House budget director Peter Orszag and Christina Romer, chairman of the Council of Economic statement.Advisers, said in a joint  The officials said unemployment may even rise “slightly” over the next few months as discouraged workers start job-hunting again.

“We do not expect further declines in unemployment this year,” the officials said in testimony prepared for the House Appropriations Committee. They predicted the economy would add about 100,000 jobs a month on average — not enough to bring the jobless rate down substantially…

All these Dems will have to tout as an achievement will be the bill the people hate, a bill which will not stop insurers from pre-exing ADULTS for YEARS, but which will raise our taxes and costs immediately..good frakkin luck with that y’all..
